(Mississippi) People in Mississippi are one step closer to being able to brew beer at home.

The House has sent a bill to Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant that would legalize home brewing, but there’s a limit.

People 21 and older would be allowed to brew up to 200 gallons of beer each year, as long as they live in a city or county where alcohol is legal.

The bill says home-brewed beer can’t be sold and can only be taken outside a home when the brewer is taking it to a tasting event or competition.
